Many Newcastle United fans have reacted to a transfer link for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele after Bleacher Report was told that he could be an option to fix the Tyneside club’s striker woes.
Other names that were thrown about as possible transfers were Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho, but the outlet believes that Dembele is the most likely option.
The 40 million euro (around £35 million) valued man is enjoying a relatively impressive season so far in France, scoring 22 goals and providing seven assists in 42 appearances in all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.
By contrast, Joelinton is not having the best of debut campaigns, netting just three times and making four assists in 34 games in all competitions for the Toon, as per the website.
Perhaps more was expected of the club record £40 million signing, but so far he has arguably failed to deliver. This could leave him vulnerable to replacement, and Dembele could well be the man to do it.
These members of the Toon faithful reacted to the transfer link on Twitter:

Him or Édouard are the most likely striker targets for me

Either he or Eduourd would be class I’m a big fan of Chimy Avila to think he plays for Ousasuna if memory serves. Exciting times ahead hopefully be interesting to see if we go for either Cavani or Mertens to.
